Spend 5 minutes and save 10% with MailChimp

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 16:44:52 +0000

For those using MailChimp, here’s a simple way to save 10%: Enable two-step authentication. Two-step authentication is a must for your important accounts (think online banking, email, PayPal, email service provider, etc). It requires a two-step login that mostly eradicates social-engineering hacks. Best of all, MailChimp uses AlterEgo, which integrates into Google Authenticator. When you […]



Your Network is both Overrated and Underrated

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 16:46:12 +0000

We can all agree that your network is a critical part of your success. Be it from introductions to people you can work with, to guest posts on influential websites, to just soaking up knowledge from experience and theory, your network is one of the greatest tools you can have. Yet just as people obsess […]



Local Search (and Directories) are incredibly difficult.

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 14:48:24 +0000

I’m a big fan of playing to your strengths. For me – that’s finding something interesting, iterating, building it, and moving on. For others, it’s really diving deep into a singular topic. For others, its programming solutions. We all have our skills (which you do have to nurture, but that’s for another day). One common […]



You’re not as big as you think you are.

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 16:55:16 +0000

Something that has always baffled me is how big people’s egos get. And this is true in every industry I’ve ever been in – from online gaming to domains to local search to daily deals to fitness/health now. Somehow there are people in this world who think making $10,000 a month or having 50,000 FB […]



Why I say no thanks to investments and making more money.

Tue, 03 Feb 2015 17:17:33 +0000

Next month, it will have been four years since I helped co-found Examine.com. A pretty simple idea (“Lets look at the actual evidence behind supplements and nutrition), it’s evolved into something a lot bigger – 30,000+ visitors a day, a monthly research digest, and generating over a million dollars a year. Over 1500 professionals rely […]



Quantified Self may actually help you fail

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 17:10:16 +0000

I recently finished reading The Art of Learning, and greatly enjoyed it. While I’ve always been pretty strong on the technical aspects of learning (eg precision practice, codifying routines, etc), my mental prowess when it comes to learning new things is one of my weaker points. As I’ve also backed off more and more from […]



Sorry, but plagiarizing isn’t a “mistake” (hi Jaco De Bruyn)

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:39:50 +0000

Backstory: John Meadows posted on Facebook how fitness model Jaco de Bruyn ripped off his workout program. Jaco de Bruyn then posted admitting he ripped it off, and came to a business agreement with John. Some time after that, Jaco backed out. How the story unfolds, I don’t know. I can vouch that John Meadows […]



Examine.com: A Million Dollar Organization

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 17:38:13 +0000

Three months ago, Examine.com was sitting at above $700,000 in revenue. With the recent launch of the Examine.com Research Digest (ERD), Examine.com is now a million dollar business. And cash-flow positive to boot. I already covered the basics steps of what made us stand out. But you know what ERD was? It was us doubling […]



To-Doned list

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 15:49:02 +0000

Tasks and todo lists – everyone talks about them. The satisfaction of crossing something off. Their never-ending nature. I love todo lists. And not because they keep me organized or because of the satisfaction of crossing them out. Nope. I love todo lists because I save everything I did get done and keep it on […]
